The Canadian New Music Network is thrilled to launch a new MENTORSHIP PROGRAM to support and guide artists and arts workers in the realization of projects related to new creative music and sound. CNMN brings together all those who are interested in creative music and sound practices. This includes performers, composers and creators as well as presenters, producers, curators, educators and arts workers. Anyone who had a new or existing project that could benefit from the guidance of an experienced mentor was welcome to apply. In our 2020 pilot version, we are pleased to support the following applicants:

Adrian Avendano
Matthew Becker
Carmen Braden
Edward Enman
Kim Farris-Manning
Émilie Fortin
India Gailey
Rebecca Gray
Emily Hiemstra
Guillaume Jabbour
Justin Massey
Jessica McMann
Olivia Shortt
Caitlin Smith
Theresa Thordarson

Depending on the nature of the project, CNMN is offering one to four sessions with a mentor. We will be highlighting mentorship projects on CNMN’s social media, so stay tuned. This initiative is about making connections between the members of our community and sharing knowledge first — the outcome of the connection is secondary.

Mentors for this round of applicants include:

Parmela Attariwala
Ruby Kato Attwood
Andrew Balfour
Anne Bourne
Amy Brandon
Raven Chacon

Gabriel Dharmoo
Eve Egoyan
Sonia Paço-Rocchia
